Hi, My 2-cents... I would go back to the ball hitch and dump the WDH; neither your car or camper is structurally designed to use it. All it really will do is add weight to the rear of your car. If you get the spring bar tight enough to throw weight on the front axle, you are putting stress on the car's uni-body (non-frame) that it wasn't designed for. I think air bags, air shocks, or helper leaves on the car's rear axle is the best thing to do. Good Luck, and happy camping. Todd PS - yes, you can take the two bolts off the shank and flip it over so the 'extra' tail now hanging below the hitch is on top!
